Yay!! I’ve lost 25.6 pounds total so far with 54.4 pounds to go to reach my goal! My BMI has dropped from 36.9 to 33.1 and my goal BMI is 24.9.
Natural Weight Loss
Let me guess.
Do you have
>A scale that’s stuck, no matter how little you eat or how much exercise you do?
>A sagging energy level that seems only to be getting worse?
>Skin that’s starting to turn sallow or wrinkle excessively – and you’re not even past forty?
>Skin that’s constantly breaking out – and you’re decades past adolescence?
>Moods that peak and trough unpredictably?
>A monthly cycle that drives you (and everyone around you) absolutely nuts?
>Crushing fatigue that doesn’t improve, no matter how much sleep you get?
>A burned-out, slightly “crispy” feeling that you can’t shake?
>Have you lost and gained the same 5, 10, 20 pounds, over and over?
>Or, more likely, have you lost and gained steadily more each time, losing ground, getting more and more hopeless?
I do, too.
All that and more.
I knew something was wrong, but I couldn’t figure it out – I thought I was going insane.
But now that I’ve been digging into the field of endocrinology (the branch of medicine that deals with hormones) I’m slowly realizing I’ve been bringing a lot of this on myself.
And when I look around, I know I’m not alone.
There are a lot of screwed-up endocrine systems out there.
The statistics tell the story:
>24 million Americans have diabetes (1 in 4 don’t even know it yet).
>57 million Americans have prediabetes.
>1 in 4 people have metabolic syndrome.
>1 in 10 people have an underactive thyroid gland.
>1 in 10 women have polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).
>1 in 13 women have severe PMS.
That’s before we even start talking about the 33 million women heading toward menopause.
Boomers, sure, but I’m talking about the first Gen Xers, too.
Then add on another 33 million men headed for andropause, aka “male menopause,” which, yes, really does exist.
All of these conditions are caused by hormonal imbalance.
Some are the predictable result of aging; some are brought on by genetic predisposition.
But what’s the most common symptom of an out-of-whack endocrine system?
Excess body fat, plain and simple.
Obesity – not to mention premature aging and disease – is caused by hormonal imbalances that gradually wear down your endocrine system until it’s tricked into packing on pounds.
And once your metabolism thinks you want to put on weight, it does all it can to accommodate you.
That’s why 2 out of 3 of us are overweight, and 1 in 3 of us have become obese.
And that’s why I’m blogging about it.
Together, we’re going to reeducate you and your metabolism so your body becomes a naturally vibrant, invigorated fat-burning machine.
Come join me on my weight loss journey! I’d love to have you along!
Have an awesome day!
